Latest release “This place your soul” produced by Danielle Caruana (Mama Kin)
To capture Valentina Brave’s voice and music is to hitch a ride in Persephone’s Ute, having burned across the darkest night of the soul, picked up the Virgin Mary herself to ride shotgun, with Betty Davis on the bonnet.
Her vintage rock, murder ballads and soul anthems come directly from the underworld. These are transformative songs that will spit you out the other side of a journey that may begin in suffering, but ends in a melodic freedom. Brave makes vulnerability her ally, a powerful medicine in these times.
An artist worth witnessing, Brave shared the stage with global luminaries Michael Franti, Jackson Browne and Juanes at Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival when Franti invited her to perform for his main stage closing set. With overwhelming response, it was a landmark moment in the evolution of powerhouse vocalist, improviser and world class artist.
Her Debut EP Wildflower, produced by aria nominated musician Danielle Caruana (Mama Kin), as the title suggests, is indicative of what grows out of human heartache. Wildflowers grow in graveyards, sprung from grief, their beauty bleeding unapologetically into the earth. Like these plants, Brave is a resilient feminine force.
